CHICKEN…BACON…MEET GREEK SALAD

Yes, I’ve been messing with traditional Greek Salad again by adding chicken and bacon (and romaine lettuce), but it’s how I pass off salad as an entree for my high-metabolism guys. And it worked again. They left the table full and with thumbs high in the air. Chicken…bacon…meet Greek Salad. Greek Salad…meet chicken and bacon. ENCHANTE’!

Another Greek-ish Salad

6 strips bacon

1-1/4 lb chicken tenderloins

1 large tomato, chopped

1 cucumber, peeled and chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1 cup crumbled feta cheese

3 scallions, sliced thin

1/2 cup sliced Kalamata olives

1/2 cup chopped pepperoncini

2 tbsp parsley, chopped

3 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

4 cups chopped romaine lettuce

1) To large skillet over medium-high heat, add bacon and cook 2-3 minutes each side until just crisp; remove from skillet and drain on paper towels

2) Add chicken to skillet and cook in bacon drippings 4-5 minutes each side until just cooked through; remove from skillet and let cool 5 minutes

3) Chop bacon, then cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and set aside

4) In small bowl, mix olive oil, vinegar, oregano, salt, and pepper

5) To large bowl, add: tomato, cucumber, red and green bell pepper, feta cheese, scallions, Kalamata olives, pepperoncini, bacon, chicken, and parsley; gently toss

6) Give olive oil-vinegar dressing a refresher mix, pour over salad, and gently toss

7) Divide romaine lettuce between 4 plates and spoon tomato-cucumber-chicken mixture over top; serve

Servings: 4
